    Not looking forward to the Olympics. Virtually every station/route to/from work has lovely red circles

    Whilst being there as a GamesMaker I'll be taking my bike as an alternative method of transport.

    Only camping 2 tube stops away from the Olympic Village.

    Well done is a shame some of the sponsors and media could not take their bikes.

    I'm really looking forward to the games. I'm anticipating chaos, but I may be surprised. It's a once in a lifetime event and I intend to enjoy it as such.

    The torch wont be passing through my town, but I shall be squishing on the train with my teenagers to see it go through the next town up the line. (Parking there is a nightmare on a good day! )

    I am looking forward to it too - even though we will end up with road closures because of the traffic down to Weymouth. The torch is passing quite near us- we may walk to see it. Dunno if the children will come though..
    *it is coming through on Friday July 13th so I dont know what will happen re work. On the plus side, there are 3 locations all within a couple of miles of my home

    Don't know why they can't use the train to Weymouth it we save so much hassle even heads of state could use it.

    Quite glad I use the Overground, my route to work isn't affected at all Some 'busier than usual' at Finchley Road, which is closest to me but nothing to worry about

    I feel sorry for those who work in central London though!

    That's the problem behind this though - too many people trying to use the public transport!
